Shaun Escoffery is a British soul and R&B singer and actor, who was born in London. His first major release was the single “Space Rider”, released by Oyster Music in March 2001. It was played regularly by the BBC Radio 1 DJ Trevor Nelson and the Dreem Teem. It peaked at No. 52 in the UK Singles Chart, and was followed by the UK No. 53 hit “Days Like This” in 2002. After releasing several other singles on the same label, Escoffery became more noticed for his voice – being noticed by Lennox Lewis, who invited him to Memphis, Tennessee, to sing the national anthem before his boxing match with Mike Tyson.
